psp outsold the wii-u.. lol
PeaSFor  +   614d ago
thats not funny, 58% is impressive
devwan  +   613d ago
The actual unit sales are what should be impressive or not, not a percentage based on the previous period. You can paint all kinds of pictures with percentages like that, straight numbers tell the truth.

3DS outsold the Vita, PSP and Wii U combined.

well look at xbox 3rd less than half the sales of the 3ds yet sells more software.. 3ds sales mean nothing since most of its userbase dont buy alot games since they are mainly casuals.

@Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II 3 out of the 10 games on this list are 3DS titles i have no idea where the hell are you getting this information

"well look at xbox 3rd less than half the sales of the 3ds yet sells more software.."

because y'know... It helps when you've sold something like 80 million worldwide since 2005 as opposed to 33 million since 2011/12
MaxXAttaxX  +   613d ago
PS Vita has the highest attach rate, meaning people are playing more games on it ;)

it also out sold the vita
PopRocks359  +   614d ago
Four+ disagrees?

How do you disagree with a fact? It's right there in plain sight. PSP outsold Wii U and the Wii U outsold the Vita (not even by much more than a few thousand on both accounts).

***"How do you disagree with a fact?"***

Nothing here is "fact" though... This article is labeled "rumor" for a reason. Maybe that's probably why people are disagreeing because they are making "this outsold that" statements as if these numbers are definitive written in stone facts.

Wii U was up 58% and still got outsold by the PSP.

DS fanboys said PSP has no games and it was a failure. History is repeating itself, lol.

Look how the PSP is selling for being a relic, mad props to that handheld.

I'm going to get a PSP to hack it and play Pokemon Leaf Green X )

PS3 outsold the 360 and is widening the gap every week lol.
T2  +   614d ago
Im actually surprised 36o is still selling as many as they are ... What are you all playing on 360 ? Mines in a coma id trade it in but still 3 months of forced gold payment
romancer  +   614d ago
How many Sony shares do you own? Are you anticipating a dividend?

Even so, you might do better to invest in Nintendo...

As for the 360, (assuming the figures are close to being accurate, which may quite an assumption) the #1 sales of NCAA Football 14 must mean something...
dale_denton  +   614d ago
careful when you say that man, these xbox fanboys only think the xbox only exists in the states.. they don't praise "worldwide" sales here.
HammadTheBeast  +   614d ago

Prepare your mind to be blown.

PS3 outsells Xbox in pretty much everywhere in the world but US, which 360 has a grip on.

'Mericans lover their football (No clue why it's called this, doesn't make sense).

Therefore, higher sales of Football games on 360 (only 100k lulz).

What IS surprising, is that The Last of Us is STILL in the top 3, and only sold 100 k less than NCAA which came out this week.

Any questions?
KeePeR_21  +   614d ago

Yes, it means the 360 lacks variety, notice that ps3 has 4 games in the top ten, take last of us and one of the lower selling games away and apply that to ncaa 14 and the ps3 version might've outsold the 360 version by a great margin.
LoveOfTheGame  +   613d ago
Why is basketball not handball? Why is baseball not called batball?

It's called football because it was derived from Rugby, wait for it, football.

Learn other people's cultures instead of making fun of them.

wii u outsold PS3 in japan lol
dale_denton  +   614d ago
sony still made more $ because they sold the ps3 more than wii u... LOL!
DarkHeroZX  +   613d ago
Yeah but Wii U sales already went back down. So next VG update will have Wii U back to it's second to last spot.
Brasi1989  +   613d ago
I doubt WiiU will be down next update as Pikmin 3 will have been released in more countries.

Why do you sony fanboys never compare the Vita to the 3DS? LOL

Who cares about handhelds? It's the equivalent of a gaming laptop.

im pretty sure the basic model is $199

In the UK you can get the 500GB model for £175 and the 12GB basic model for £139.

There are good prices out there...

god damn i am really impress on how long luigi's manson has been out and yet it is in the top 10 still
AWBrawler  +   614d ago
Quality games have long legs.
Williamson  +   614d ago
Not to be a fanboy but in the North american or US charts people always troll sony for getting beat by the 360,but the worldwide weekly sales of the ps3 has at least 40 000 up on the 360(even though vgchartz arent always 100% correct), so I guess the worldwide chart is more important.
LoveOfTheGame  +   613d ago
Why does either chart matter to me or most people? I don't own stocks in either company and one console selling more isn't going to make me want to play it anymore than another console.
dark-hollow  +   614d ago
If a small niche franchise could push Wii u to 40k a week and be on the top 5 software chart then imagine how well the big hitters like Mario kart 8 and super smash Bros gonna push the system forward.

Like I've always said. Nintendo was really at fault for this major drought of games in the Wii u first months, but as soon as the big games get released (a price cut would a major factor if it happened) we might see the console doing much better than it does right now.
Dead_Cell  +   613d ago
Niche? Pikmin is big man, especially in Asia. Not my thing but some markets just eat it up.
dark-hollow  +   613d ago
Well compared to smash Bros and Mario kart, pikmin is very small. Amazing game but these games have much bigger fanbases.
Dead_Cell  +   613d ago
Mario is pretty much Nintendo's Western hook, in Asia it's stuff like Pikmin.
BattleAxe  +   614d ago
I wish Sony would just go back into full worldwide production of the PSP, and give away dev kits to developers for free. If its the 4th best selling console on the market now, then imagine if they actually threw some real support behind it, like they did back in the Socom: Fire Team Bravo days.
Ju  +   614d ago
Just imagine the Vita would be available for the PSP price... and Sony would (in addition) release PSP titles on mem card for Vita...since it runs all PSP titles.

SpideySpeakz  +   613d ago
I'm personally sick of 'imagining'.
Who cares anymore? It's such a drag, and a waste of developer's money.
BattleAxe  +   614d ago
Yeah, but that won't be happening any time soon. I still use my PSP, and I love it. PSP is selling like hotcakes in Europe and Japan, and if they were to continue to support it properly at its current price point, it would give the 3DS a run for its money. People like cheap things that are good, and the PSP falls into that category.
Ju  +   613d ago
Somebody please give me a reason other than price why one would get a PSP over a Vita - assuming you don't have neither one. I think Sony needs to do a better job of telling people you can buy all/most PSP games in the Vita PSN store - and expand to selling those on mem cards like Vita games. But other than that why would you want to be stuck in last gen?

Imagine, if you will, a world where Nintendo games and pre-Sega downfall games can be played on the same portable device along with free PSP games.

Nothing beats a good old hacked portable system. It only does everything...almost literally.

To everybody up there:
Don't you guys get bored battling over sales which none of you will get a cent from these sales numbers. I sometimes wonder if you guys game
Hicken  +   614d ago
Nah, it's kinda fun.

In all honesty, it's a human nature thing. We wanna know that the product we backed is "better" than the competitor we didn't chose. Throughout this generation, there have been many determining factors, but one that settles MOST questions at the end of ANY gen is which console sold the most.
fsfsxii  +   613d ago
It might be fun at first, but it gets tiring and tedious
Underworld  +   613d ago
I don't. I kinda like seeing and talking about sales. I like seeing the company I choose to support doing as good as it can. That's just me though.

Yet this is your second post saying the same thing, in a sales thread...

You still here?
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   614d ago

Pikmin 3 did all of that?

I hope that the rest of their Software does just as well.

Seriously, if Nintendo had it's own FPS and it's own Open World- it would be almost 100% self-sustained with its own exclusives.

No matter how well the other 2 companies do this Generation, WiiU is not going to kill Nintendo.

These are just momentary celebratory words 5 Years to go for WiiU; lots of twist sand turns ahead.
jameson12345  +   614d ago
WOW! Pikmin 3 increased Wii U sales by 58%?! I wonder what will happen when the other big Nintendo games come out?

Yet its doing pretty good in Japan. Just US isn't selling much Vita doesn't mean the end of it. I guess Wii U will drop off the market if that's the way you think because Vita was selling more than Wii U until just recently. ^~^

How does Xbox 360 have TWICE the North American install base as PS3 and yet only sells 25% more copies of NCAA Football 14?
dlocsta  +   613d ago
The how accurate are these numbers? MS revealed nearly a week ago the total 360 sales surpassed 78.2 million. How is it this site is still less and these numbers are "current"? Which other numbers in here are incorrect?
tiffac008  +   613d ago
VGChartz does "estimated" SOLD numbers, they do not follow official SHIPPED numbers.
